The South Island provided the final stepping-stone for the Antarctic expeditions of early explorers. The carefully curated pieces within this room hark back to the days when determined men set off on journeys that pushed them to their limits and sometimes, tragically, beyond.

Amazingly comfortable, quiet and spacious rooms. The rooms are so interesting, all individual. Everything you could want from a hotel and stunning decor. The staff were friendly. helpful and very efficient.
The rooms are beautifully appointed, each one different, with quirky but quality decor and fixtures. The bed and linens are excellent, the sofa was a nice leather, the bathroom roomy and sparkling.
Everything from the welcoming on arrival, the stay, the location, the cleanliness, the breakfast, the decor - all was 5 - Star quality!!! And the cost was more than reasonable. Would highly recommend to any and all visiting the area.
Great location in a lovely old building. Hosts were very friendly. Decor is wonderful and very fitting for Oamaru. Our room was decked out with old rowing gear and interesting photos and there’s a great collection of memorabilia in the foyer and hallway. Bed was very comfortable with beautiful linen and the room was spotless. Thank you for a wonderful stay.
A gorgeous place, thoroughly enjoyed it, thankyou.

Cool, funky, quirky and fabulous... Recently refurbed it is an eccentric modern hotel set in a great building... Each room has a different fun theme but isn’t over done. First class all round with exceptional service to boot. Well done.
Thankyou so much, we had a wonderful stay here. Hope to see you again soon.
Friendly welcome by the owners, Centrally located to meet all my needs. The hotel had all the facilities you would expect from a five star hotel at a reasonable price. large clean common area well themed. Will be back.
